Emma Watson is the one who tried to act entirely though her eyebrows in Beauty and the Beast and failed. It's been two years and I still hate that movie for what it represents: taking a classic and giving it a banal makeover.

I thought it was nice looking but uninspired and boring, but Lindsay Ellis had a great read on it on YouTube talking about how it’s trying to answer all of the bad faith criticisms of the animated film and fails badly. Good watch.

SHINee's back






The remake certainly is a pretty movie, but somehow manages to completely miss the mark despite being an almost shot for shot redo. They take an already admittedly problematic concept, and somehow regress it into actually being a kind of disgusting story, rather than the way the original somehow took a p gross idea and made the romance engaging, and made it work.

Besides, as good an idea as 'cast Hermione as Belle!' sounds on paper, Emma Watson can't loving sing lmao

I also need to shout out the incredibly hilarious hubbub they made over LeFou being gay in this, and then it's a blink and you'll miss moment at the end where I guess he dances with a dude. Like poo poo at least play up his boner for Gaston or smth

Drake is going to continue to get away with his creepy, predatory behavior for as long as he's smart enough to never do anything illegal or actually commit outright assault. If he only has consensual, legal-age sex and never gropes anybody who'd go to the authorities or the press then he'll just keep on being a creepy child predator.

The wiki states:

quote:

In Mexico, criminal legislation is shared between the federal and state governments. The federal law establishes the age of 12 as the minimum age of consent, while the age at which there are no restrictions for consensual sexual activities is 18 (sex with someone 12-18 is not illegal per se, but can still be open to prosecution under certain circumstances). Local state laws may override the federal law. In practice, the decision as to whether or not to prosecute is left to state authorities regardless of the younger person's age. At state level, the minimum ages of consent vary between 12 (and puberty in a few states) and 15, while the age at which there are no restrictions for consensual sexual activities vary from 16 to 18 (most common 18).

Canada was 14 until shockingly recently (just looked it up and the change was made in 2008). AFAIK, there wasn't even any subtlety to the law like there was in Mexico.

Age of consent reform is a pretty modern phenomenon, and it's hardly the only sex crimes related reform that is depressingly recent. People were dodging rape charges as recently as the late 70's because the victim happened to be their spouse,

quote:

In the United States, prior to the mid-1970s marital rape was exempted from ordinary rape laws. The exemption is also found in the 1962 Model Penal Code, which stated that "A male who has sexual intercourse with a female not his wife is guilty of rape if: (...)".

In the Oregon v. Rideout case in December 1978, a jury acquitted John Rideout of raping his wife. This led many American states to allow prosecution for marital and cohabitation rape.

In some states, courts have struck down the marital exemption as unconstitutional. In the 1984 New York Court of Appeals case of People v. Liberta, judge Sol Wachtler stated that "a marriage license should not be viewed as a license for a husband to forcibly rape his wife with impunity. A married woman has the same right to control her own body as does an unmarried woman". Similarly, in Alabama, the marital exemptions from the sodomy law (Williams v. State (1986)) and from the rape law (Merton v. State (1986)) were found unconstitutional.

And many states still have requirements, limitations, or qualifiers on rapes committed against a spouse or partner. A common one is the "mental incapacitation" exemption. I.e., someone can drug their spouse without that person's knowledge or consent, have sex with them and it's not considered rape.

I think the laws should be such that a high school senior isn't a registered sex offender for life because they had consensual sex with a high school junior, but after age, like 20ish the other person needs to be 18.

I think I'd maybe take it a little farther and say they need to at least be old enough to drink if you're over 25. Being in your late-20's or early-30's (or... older) and having to plan a date around where you can't legally take your date is pretty skeevy.

If you wanna blow your mind as a US citizen try talking to UK folks who’ve got a normalized 16 year old age of consent in 2019. I feel like it’s way more common to just openly date teens as an adult over there, but that’s only anecdotal from the handful of British friends I have.
